Week 1 Day 3 of BM #61 -
I read up a lot of material for this week's theme of medicinal teas which I opted. And it has brought home a simple fact, that the everyday spices which we use in our kitchen are a source of invaluable health benefits.
Simple spices like Coriander, Cumin, Ginger, Fennel, Cinnamon, Turmeric when used in the proper manner can provide relief from various ailments and boost our immunity. Here is one such tea which aids in digestion, weight loss, relieves bloating, cramps etc.,
Lemon juice and honey are totally optional. I usually opt out of them but I found the kids take it easily with the addition of those.
